No governing bodies regarding paint ball and its something many airsofters have even asked the government about with no clear answer.
But this is about GL's so can we say its an RIF?
IF he was wanting to buy one he would need to provide defence anyway which in my books is an RIF.
The VCRA covers all firearms not just airsoft hence the whole governing bodies thing is irrelevant.
Jersey, this is true, but the same can't be said for air rifles/pistols etc, which you would assume come under the same laws as they meet the descriptions in the act in my opinion.
Since many, but not all retailers ask for defence, to be on the safe side we should assume that a defence is required. If you attempt to purchase and do not provide a defence and the retailer requires it, your transaction will be refused anyway.
Since we cannot access a clear definition from the VCRA, or a body such as the UKARA, I'm closing this on the basis that we cannot give a certain answer and it will be down to where you buy from what happens (as stated above).
